Trust the Lord

Trust the Lord for He is too
wise to act irrationally and
too compassionate to be cruel. — Marty

Synergy of Relationships

(Apostle Jim Hodges) — “The synergy of covenantal relationships produces more comprehensive and effectual ministry. Of course, there must be some level of trust for such relationships to form and maximize the Lord’s ministry among us. We trust God and must learn to trust one another. Those who stay in isolation because they cannot trust will minimize their gift and calling.”

Relationship and Being Proven

Have you ever noticed that there is a tendency in many people to want to advance beyond others, to advance in the exercise of authority whether they have been approved or not?  In 2Sam.15, David’s son Absalom pushed for and expected to be able to take authority in areas where he hadn’t been proven. We find the scriptural principle of the process of being proven in 1Tim.3:10.  Biblical principal tends to follow this pattern:  (1) Process while walking out relationship;  (2) Process leads to being proven;  (3)  Process and being proven leads to a track record that follows the principal of Lk.16:10– “faithful in little can be trusted in much”.  We are praying you discover daily that you are staying in relationship long enough to be proven so you can be trusted with much.  (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24hrs/day.)

Hold on to the Rail

There is a shifting going on and opportunities for many but we must hold on to the rail and continue to make progress. Recently (as I was praying over some persons we are ministering to) I saw a person walking down a passageway of a large ship. The ship appeared to be rolling as a result of rough seas. The person was trying, as best as they could, to maintain their balance. Then, they noticed the handrail on the wall. It was like, “Oh, yes, I could hold on to that!”. So they gripped the rail and took another step and shifted their grip forward and took another step. Even though the seas may roll and make progress tedious, God’s Word and His faithfulness are the rail we can grip and continue to move forward with. “You are to follow only God, your God, hold him in deep reverence, keep his commandments, listen obediently to what he says, serve him—hold on to him for dear life!” (Deut.13:4, Msg)

Relationship Over Time

In David’s son Absalom, the people got the appearance and looks that fit their agenda but they didn’t get the character in the man.  He was able to present a fine appearance and a desirable program but there was no character behind the appearance.  Absalom got the results of a self-promoter and Israel got the privilege of dealing with the fallout.  Maybe if we give ourselves to time and process and track records, we will have less fallout to deal with. Quality decisions and relationship over time engender trust.  (1Thess.5:12, KJV)  “And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you.”  We are praying you discover daily that you are trusting others only as you give them time to prove themselves trustworthy.  (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24hrs/day.)

Trusting the Trustworthy

Trust is a principle that is not impossible to live.  It’s a choice.  The only things that stand in the way are experience and lies, both of which have to bow to the truth.  Sometimes we just have to start by giving up increments of concern to the faithfulness of God.  It really is okay to let go.  For some of us that is harder than it sounds, but the depth of breath experienced on the other side is extraordinary.  We are in a season of miracles, signs, and wonders.  Dare to be a part of that by trusting the Trustworthy.  “How blessed and greatly favored is the man who trusts You.” (Ps.84:12)  (This is the seventh excerpt from the article “Trustworthy” by Melissa Gabler in SEEC Magazine.)

Trust to Dwell

Trust keeps the door open to dwell in His presence.  We stay around those we trust.  Ps.84:11 “For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord bestows grace and favor and honor; No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.” Trust is the gateway to God’s intentions for us, equipping, protection, grace, favor and all good things.  It makes sense that the summation of this Psalm is, “O Lord of hosts, How blessed and greatly favored is the man who trusts in You.” On top of being born to trust, these are compelling reasons to do so.  (This is the sixth excerpt from the article “Trustworthy” by Melissa Gabler in SEEC Magazine.)
